Carlsen vs. Nepomniachtchi: World Championship – Game 6 Part 2

Greetings chess players. My name is Chris Torres, and this is Daily Chess Musings’ Special Coverage of the 2021 FIDE World Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi.

Game 6 was the first decisive game of the 2021 World Championship game and today’s episode is Part 2 of 3 for this truly historic game.

As you recall, Part 1 of this series concluded with Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi reaching the first time control after a fierce skirmish under extreme time pressure. So my second installment begins after move 40 was reached when both players were awarded another hour of time. This gave Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi enough breathing room to put on a strategic masterclass in two rooks versus a queen imbalances. However, after playing 30 more moves in this epic battle, both players were back in time trouble before transitioning into a rook and knight versus queen endgame on move 82. This is where we will conclude Part 2 and we will examine the ensuing endgame in our next episode. Now that I have defined the episodes in this series, let’s take a close look at Part 2 of 3 from game 6 of the Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi Match!

I hope you enjoyed today’s special presentation of part two of game 6 from the 2021 FIDE World Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi.
